Amy Street

Web (Full Length Episodes) – 2016

I've been watching you lots! And I'm watching it again on Monday.
– Celeste Osterman to Shortland Street actor Matt Chamberlain
We loved the short form documentary as a succinct way to tell a small aspect of a person’s life. Pretty quickly we no longer saw the disability but the individual. We made Amy Street to help show the individual rather than being all lumped in together as a group easily passed by.
– Directors Kirsty Griffin and Viv Kernick
I want to be noticed as a person, not as a thing, because a lot of people see me as disability and that's not right.
– Moyzee
I just can't get enough of her. Every time I see her, I want her at home.
– Dave, on his fiancée Topsy
I can't help myself, I like winning.
– Jonathan, after winning a gold medal at the Special Olympics in Dunedin
You just don't know when your time is up, it's just there, you know. You don't know. So, you know, if I die when I'm 40, I die when I'm 40. If I die when I'm 160, well, so be it.
– Moyzee, on doctors telling him he'll die at age 40 (he was 39 during filming)
